Now setting down and watching Katy Perry video is not something that falls into my regular viewing habits. Truth be told although they are kind of fun, it’s just not something I find time for without a reason.
While I would not call myself a Katy Perry fan I can respect her. From what I know about her she is very driven to succeed and has found the power of “Sensationalism” She now how to put on a show that makes people say “Wow”. Look at one of her first songs and video to break the scene a few years back, “I Kissed A Girl” with both it lyrics and video putting people is a frenzy on both sides of the fence. So it is not surprising to find that Katy Perry has found a spot on Viral Video Chart top 20 videos for the week coming in at number 18 with her new video “Wide Awake”
Lets take a look at the stats:
– 45,430,882 Total views
– 2,267,906 Facebook shares
– 77,112 Twitter shares
– 1,508 blog posts
It seems to me that one, the Katy Perry team has figured out how to get noticed and two, that music videos are not dead–they just moved from MTV to YouTube with 19 of the top 20 videos of the week being high production quality music videos. Say what you want but music videos are here to stay and music will always be a big part of human life.
